The days of the old, beloved classic cars in Cuba may soon be over.
The Cuban government plans to relax rules early next year on buying and selling cars.
That’s expected to crack the door on the market for countries that do business with Cuba — China, South Korea and some European countries — and see those who can afford a trade to cash in their own rustbuckets for newer, more efficient cars.
In the meantime, many Cubans are still driving the same old American cars. When something breaks, they can’t just order new parts, or even buy a new car.
Over the years, they’ve gotten pretty creative.
